Methods
Life forms: carnivores, primates, rodents, ungulates
Sampling methods: no design, automatic cameras
Sample size: 102
Years: 2004
Nets or traps: 25
Net or trap nights: 731
Camera type: analog
Cameras paired: no
Trap spacing: 1.000
Sampling comments: 25 automatic infrared cameras apparently left open continuously for a month (30 days); total sampling effort was 4387.4 camera hours, so either not all cameras were in operation at a time or (more likely and assumed) they were operational on average for 6 hours a night, so there were 4387.4/6 = 731 camera nights
cameras were spaced 1 km apart as closely as possible
macaque count is of groups, not individuals
